If you’re feeling overwhelmed or worried, it is important to have someone to reach out to. Expressing your worries with someone you trust can help you feel calm and safe. In turn, this can help you access a more positive mindset where you can rationalise your thoughts.
3. STRUCTURE YOUR DAY
Having a routine in place during the isolation period can help you stay on top of your tasks and feel productive. Before you start your day, set your intention for the day and have something to work towards. If you are struggling to get things done, that is okay. It is important to start small, make small improvements each day and be kind to yourself.
If you are able to work from home, create a dedicated work space to limit distractions and take regular breaks to stay focused. Sticking with a timetable can help you be more productive, and helps you set a boundary to disconnect from work at the end of your working day.
4. FOCUS ON THE BASICS
If you are struggling with your mental health, it is important to look after your physical health by getting enough sleep, following a balanced diet and staying active to help you regulate stress and hunger, and to support your immune system. Try and avoid things that might exacerbate your anxiety, such as smoking and alcohol.
